were -- his office told me those remarks were taken out of context. i don't know how you take those remarks out of context. we put up the whole videos. >> i think context is the right question to use here. wayne slater, this question. if this guy gets further in terms of power on the right wing, senator cruz, if he gets higher -- he's pretty high right now. up along with rand paul. people will say how come we didn't know this about his father. i think people want to know about it. they'll say it's not fair to talk about a family member. i think he's more than just a family member based on what i'm seeing here. he's out in the political arena himself. he wasn't dragged into the political arena. he wasn't simply an embarrassing relative like ronald nixon or billy carter. he went into the political arena. he chose to have us listen to him and now we are. your thoughts, wayne. who is he and what role does he play? >> david's got it exactly right. i've spent time with rafael cruz on the road with ted cruz. he is very, very, very close to his son in every way that you can think both ideol
mike, what do we know? >> reporter: we don't know a lot. the access road century boulevard shut down leading into lax. there were many people in terminal 3 because of the weather situation on the east coast. multiple delays had lax and other airports around the country more packed than usual. when this happened it was a packed terminal. 9:30 pacific time, exchange of gunfire. eyewitness reports we've not confirmed this independently, an individual with a rifle near the checkpoint at virgin america opened fire. there was an exchange of gunfire. two victims shot they have been removed to loem local hospitals. the alleged suspect himself is also hit. he's been removed as well. still a fluid situation in that we don't know the way it has been resolved except the suspect, person identified as the suspect has been shot. we don't know if he's in custody or the condition of the three. this happened at 9:30 in the morning at one of the busiest airports in the country. right now you can see a situation where access has been restricted or shut down as main access roads in the terminal itse
at their own peril, that they don't believe this will happen, which is one of the reasons why these three women are getting together. they're going to try and heparins get out the women's vote. if the matchup is hillary versus christie, is it a foregone conclusion that she's going to win the vast majority of the women's vote? >> i think most women wind up voting for democrats but it's a little more complicated than that. democrats dominate among minority women. latino women and african-american women pull it in for the democratic party. unmarried women are really the swing constituency in the overall female vote. >> imagine if they start to get out the vote with that group in much bigger numbers because they have not voted in huge numbers. >> typically democrats are very good at bringing ot constituencies. the issues where republicans have hurt themselves, not necessarily among married white women but unmarried women and that's a huge x factor that plays to hillary's advantage. >> i want to bring in donna edwards, democrat from maryland. congresswoman, good morning. >> good morning. >> you've s

resonates. if they vote that down, they're losing hispanic voters and i don't care who the candidates are. they can vote on a jobs bill. >> well, i hope you agree with my point. the reason they don't want to do that, it forces them to choose between the haters out there who don't want immigrants and what the president is pushing. >> absolutely. but make them vote on that. you know, they're attacking the affordable care act, and you're right. the affordable care act polls better when it's called the affordable care act than it does when it's called obama care. but make them vote on a jobs bill. and another distinction. 41 times the republicans in the house have wasted the nation's time voting to repeal the affordable care act. but they haven't passed a jobs bill. keep sending them jobs bill and make them vote on that. >> i agree with that. yeah. anyway, what i want to do is just change the conversation. because we're not going to get a report card on obama care on health care through november 30th or march. this is going to be an endless, endless woodpecker thing. the governor mentioned vo
points by moderates. they keep relearning the same less some, but they don't absorb it. and i don't think they're going to absorb it. >> i think the definition of a zealot who after they lose said if they'd only done more. cuccinelli was the problem from day one. instead of saying we blew it by running too extreme they say the moderates didn't back the extremists. therefore it's moderate's fault. >> why are they so zealous? they hate rino. >> describe what that is. >> that's a republican in name only. they think the people that are bringing the republican party down. >> so the guy running for reelection in trenton should have gone down to richmond to campaign for the other guy. and since he didn't, it's his fault. >> the people who are the problem with the party didn't help. so that's the problem. cuccinelli, we talked about this last night, was about as good a tea party candidate as you can get. he had statewide name recognition. he's been working in virginia for years. and even so, he couldn't beat terry mcauliffe who i think is a rather tainted democratic nominee. so you can't blame th
people got coverage, that's bad. we don't want anyone to get covered. that is still for them on what was a bad week for the president, it is still a very weak message from them, i think. >> ari melber gets tonight's last word. thanks for keeping it clean after that mayor of toronto. we crossed a line there. >> you got >>> good evening from new york. i'm chris hayes. the president came before the country today for a remarkable hour, and what he said signalled a new front in the battle for the affordable care act. it's one that a lot of people have missed. but first, the administrative fix to the affordable care act announced today. the president's blunt effort to stand up and take responsibility for the problems that have dogged the rollout. >> i hear you loud and clear. i said that i would do everything we can to fix this problem and today, i'm offering an idea that will help do it. the state insurance commissioner still has the power to decide what plans can and can't be sold if their states, but the bottom line is, insurers can extend current plans that would otherwise be c
of plan. those who got cancellation notices do deserve and have received an apology from me. but they don't want just words. what they want is whether we can make sure that they are in a better place and that we meet that commitment. i'm the head of this team. we did fumble the ball on it and what i'm going to do is make sure we get it fixed. there have been times where i thought we were kind of, you know, slapped around a little bit, unjustly. this one's deserved. right? it's on us. but we can't lose sight of the fact that the status quo before the affordable care act was not working at all. >> crucial point that has gotten lost in the coverage over the last month. that part of the speech, the fumble the ball part, that's what got the headlines. but the most important thing that happened today was president obama marking a new chapter in the tempestuous frenemy-like relationship between the health insurance industry and his administration. from the very beginning, this has been one of the most complicated relationships in all of politics. up to and including the creation of the affordabl
that maybe we might tear up the facilities, which is understandable. and then some people just don't like the concept because they think we would attract crazy people and they don't want crazy people in their building. >> the clients run the gamut, from construction workers to administrative assistants. from bheem are angry at their bosses to people who want exercise. >> is there something you're angry about or here for fun? >> i'm here for fun. i can probably think of things that make me mad. >> we all can. i was saying i've been on the phone with the dmv for an hour. i was angry when i got in there. >> the stuff to destroy comes from the street. making it cost effective. >> people constantly have trash every day all day. we use all of that. we go on pickup days and we pick up the large items that people don't want anymore or can't be used anymore. those are the items that we use to operate off of. >> today the anger room has three rooms that can be set up like anything you want. but donna sees this as just the start of -- >> if all goes well, in five years, i think you'll see a huge fac
presented any of these for publication that had footnotes and a speech if people don't take the time to footnote things. it was clear that the plot line was not something i created. i department claim i created the movie. that's what is absurd. the plot line belongs to one person. the screen writer and i gave him credit for that. >> the office told nbc this. in the course of a 25-minute speech, he described the 34r09 of a movie and attributed it to the primary sources and no way saying it was his own thoughts or ideas. it has been submitted for academic tubication it would have been footnoted. only thsomething this trivial ia liberal source. don't overlook amid the back and forth of plagiarism and credibility, the question is, is this something the guy's ambitions want to be talking about? >> hopefully someone will stand and say wait a minute, not so fast. didn't we try that? didn't we learn what can happen when you let the state select for perfection? it's easy to say and oppose ask say how awful. we would never let that happen in our country. will we have the strength of character
here. i don't see it as a burden. you got to have a huge ego to say oh, please it's a burden for you speculating on me to be the leader of the free world. that's a pretty huge ego to be complaining about that. it's complimentary and i'm flattered. >> good morning. it's thursday, november 7th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set -- >> you introduce and i ask. >> no, no. >> i'll ask that question. >> no. >> you can take all the time you want. >> no. >> i'm going jump straight to it. chris christie, we love him. he's wallowing in this. you did this. i love that zoom in. like that 1972 candidate. >> chris christie represents all the hopes and dreams. >> just answer the question now. just shut up now. come on. >> political talk, just stop it. answer the question. answer the question, if you will. if you were managing chris christie, would you tell him to wallow in this just a little bit? >> he's not. >> i don't anybody manages chris christie. >> okay. >> but i think that to make sure that this moment is about a rise to national prominence, about a rise to winning national elections h
? >> is it too early for people to be asking the 2016 question? >> i don't think it's too early. i think it's part of a process. >> this isn't an issue about bullying. this is an issue of mine and jon's relationship where i may -- i've taken stuff too far. >>> all right. we've got a lot to get to this afternoon from chris christie, the newly crowned prince of the gop, to failed talks with iran, to the explosive story unfolding this week in the nfl. and, yes, the gop's benghazi obsession. but, first, we want to give you an update from the philippines where officials say 10,000 people could be dead from friday's devastating typhoon. characterized as a state of calamity. last night u.s. defense secretary chuck hagel announced u.s. forces are headed to the pacific islands to aid in search and rescue efforts. among the organizations that you can contact for information on how to help, you can reach out to the red cross, unicef, save the children. and we will be posting a additional information on our facebook page. >>> we're now going to turn back to politics. coming off his re-election win tues
to hurricane sandy. but don't take our word for it. >> my pledge to you tonight is i will govern with the spirit of sandy. >> the spirit of sandy that christie evoked so many times last night is one thing. but the facts of the recovery are something else entirely. new jersey received billions of dollars in federal aid to rebuild, and 1.8 billion of that came from the u.s. department of housing and urban development to get people back in their homes. to get that money, christie promised that 60% of the funds would be reserved for low to moderate income households. right now, it appears that chris christie is breaking that promise. of course, we don't know for sure. >> fair share housing center, an advocate group says they're frustrated, and talks of the failure to provide the most basic documents, on why thousands of families have been denied the most basic necessaries since sandy. >> the christie administration has released no information on how the money is being spent. what we do know came out of a lawsuit that alleged that the christie administration is improperly holding data
, encouragement from our folks. >> texas is a big state. we don't want to assume from top to bottom the state is incense tich -- in sensitive or blind to what you are doing. are there people in the state that have come to your aid? >>some have. not a ton. we have seen a tremendous amount of creativity and willingness to work. at state government we passed two laws that better protect workers. protections to hundreds of thousand of workers didn't happen before. we still have a long way to go. when we go to the texas legislature and talk about basic things like can workers hatch rest breaks? work outside in 100 degree heat. the last two legislative sessions they said no. >> deon't want to give breaks i 100-degree heat. >> don't want hem them to have legal right. and over a third don't get waume water. employers don't provide water on the work sites. >> how does that compare to other states? >> other states have rest breaks. only thing in austin, the city where one of our offices is lope kated, we have been able to get 60,000 workers through a local ordinance, the right to paid rest breaks. we a
york post." >> we have another guest. going all in. i don't know. >> okay. >> holy cow. >> all right. stop that. >> it's horrible. in washington we have former white house press secretary and msnbc contributor robert gibbs. >> good morning. >> can i ask you something? can we start -- is there something else in the news other than the affordable care act? >> no. i think this is worth listening to. we need to put this in perspective. yes. we have toronto mayor in this block. if you zip it i'll get that in. can you do that? that's my dangling, i'll show the toronto mayor. >> but i have to sit and listen to more disastrous news. >> it's not that disastrous but not characterized well in the roll out and they are paying for it. because when you have robert gibbs stories of people get moved or upgraded or not able to go to their doctors that's going to get in the news and i'm surprised, i'm so surprised that wasn't considered as something they needed to make sure. 5% -- >> did you see -- >> i did. hell of a story on nick sabin. >> the gitmo story. he's talking about you know we aldo have co
're finally going to vote in favor of plans that don't provide decent insurance. it is kind of crazy. and it shows you, michael, just how far the debate has gone off the rails. the republicans don't know what to do about the 45 million americans without insurance. or the tens of millions of americans who couldn't get good insurance because of pre-existing conditions and scam jobs. so that's a big picture instead we're focusing on what jonathan rightly called a slice of the issue. which is a problem. it's a small problem. but we're not talking about the big issue which is how do we have a decent health insurance system for all americans. >> to your point and speaking of crazy, republicans have denounced president obama for his lack of clarity when it comes to a small piece of the insurance market. yet they have unveiled some of the many lies about the law. here's a sampling from just this year. >> you said it's the most dangerous piece of legislation in the history of the united states. >> yes, i think so. >> i'm asking if you think -- >> let's repeal this failure before it literally
of gunfire. we don't know who was exchanging gunfire with the suspect. and in that exchange as pete williams reported, one tsa employee was injured, fatally. he's now reported to have been killed. at least one other tsa agent is injured, there's been video of him escorted into an ambulance and perhaps one or two other people, we don't know whether they are tsa employees or other passengers in the crowded area, injured as well. in a half hour there's going to be a news conference from lapd chief charlie beck and mayor eric garcetti and they'll have the answers to some questions still unknown at this point. was this individual acting alone? is that confirmed that he acted alone? we have a report about a half hour ago that the incident according to federal officials was described as being over. but there still is a pursuit and investigation throughout this crowded airport to see whether or not there was anybody working in concert with this alleged suspect. >> the gunman in custody. what eyewitnesses saying they saw and heard. eight and ten shots they thought they heard there? >> that's the numb
to take by the fbi. >> is the shooter a federal employee? >> i don't know. >> was he ever? >> i don't know. [ indiscernible ] >> not that i'm aware of. [ indiscernible ] >> no, we've -- in a dynamic situation where things unfold so rapidly and many people come in, there's always chaos in any type of event like this and always the -- everybody is always thinking forward as to whether or not there's additional suspects. as we stand here now, there's only one individual responsible for this as we know as the active -- as that active shooter in our terminal. i want to follow up a little bit on what the mayor said regarding the officers that went in after this individual. this individual was shooting as he went into the -- into the terminal. the officers didn't -- i repeat, they didn't hesitate. they went after this individual and they confronted this individual in our airport. and unfortunately, it involved an officer-involved shooting but that's what needed to be done and that was heroic. we practiced to this not more than three weeks ago. we took everyone of our officers parks trol officers
overseas and they don't have to pass the same food standards. it's a kitchen table issue. >> there's no question about it. it is a kitchen table issue. >> i couldn't resist. >> thank you. politics nation with reverend al sharpton starts right now. >>> good evening, ed. and thanks to you for tuning in. new numbers on how president obama's health care laws is helping real people across the country. the health and human service's department says the law has gotten more than half a million americans positioned to have health care. more than 100,000 have chosen plans from the federal and state health care exchanges. and nearly 400,000 have been deemed eligible for medicaid. that is the reality of the president's health care law. half a million people who didn't have insurance before are about to get covered. that's what really matters. the problem with the website are serious. but they will be fixed. the white house says other tweaks to the law will be made sooner rather than later. but all republicans want to do is talk about the problems with the website. they've done everything possi
, if corporations can decide willy-nilly they don't want to abide by this, religious organizations are probably seen in a different light, this thing won't really have any teeth by the time -- if it gets passed. it won't be effective. i'll read a quote from the "huffington post." the catholic school teacher who has done a great job for years could still be fired under enda if the school's principals discover she's a lesbian. we don't wantened, a as how far we've come but view it as a sign of how much further we need to go. what do you make of that? >> they are definitely creating unique carve-outs in civil rights law that are not applied in other areas. supporters do have to walk a fine line trying to bring republicans in, the senate and house floor and not creating a useless piece of legislation that really doesn't create any kind of enforceable mechanism to avoid discrimination. >> i just think, steve, this is a year in the last three months the pope in september came out and said, who am i to judge a gay person of goodwill who seeks the lord. if the pope can say that, why does it remain so diffic
apply to being a president or not, i don't know. >> he would still be taking questions if he had time. most hate facing the press. not this guy. democrats compared him to a late night talk show host responding to the election results. he important was on bis play as he rolled his eyes and insisted that his persona would not be a liability in the second term. >> you prepared to make any adjust ams to your style and tone down your brashment to appeal to people beyond new jersey. >> no. >> none at all? >> this is who i am and i am 23409 a one-trick pony. i am able to read a situation and conduct myself in the way that i think is most effective. that's what governs what i do. i'm not sure to put on a show. i'm here to win. >> they are trying to strike. they are not tiptoeing around it. word leaked out that the regional director will be the new director of the new hampshire party. not fully affiliated with the tea party, you might feel like you will have to scramble. potential 2016ers can't have missed this. hours after christie challenged washington to turn on tv and see how it's done. >>
served on this veterans day. we don't have a lot of time. we have wonderful responses. i'll leave you with simply steven crawford. just say thank you. "morning joe" starts right now. >>> good morning, everyone. it is monday, november 11th. welcome to "morning joe." with us onset we have msnbc and "time" magazine senior political analyst mark halperin. how is it going? >> good morning. >> double down. >> and national affairs editor msnb chris political analyst john heileman. they're co-authors of "double down." we're going to begin on a somber note. the absolute devastation from a super typhoon in the philippines. overnight the first u.s. relief flight loaded with water and generators arrived in one of the harder hit areas. marines and sailors are also helping with the search and rescue operations. up to 10,000 people are feared dead in one province alone after one of the strongest storms on record. itv's angus walker has more. >> reporter: this amateur video obtained by filipino broadcaster abscbn shows the moment of impact. a wall of water 20 feet high by some accounts crashing into

else say to him, mr. president, don't say no matter what, you're going to keep your health care plan? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there is to say it's not hindsight. >> re-election rival and former governor mitt romney and on "meet the press" this weekend where he accused the president of dishonesty and had this warning about the president's second term. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is that he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> wait, there's a little bit more, "the washington post" obtaining an internal memo that shows an outside health adviser warning of trouble ahead for the rollout. telling the administration, quote, i do not believe the relevant members of the administration understand the president's vision or have the capability to carry it out. >> looking back, people are going
time to try to get health care because they don't have it. and, you know, i am very frustrated. but i'm also somebody who, if i fumbled the ball, you know, i'm going to wait until i get the next play. then i'm going to try to run as hard as i can and do right by the team. ultimately i'm the head of this team. we did fumble the ball on it. what i'm going to do is make sure that we get it fixed. >> the president, who is not running for re-election, did everything he could to take the politic. >> cal: pressure off the people who are. congressional democrats. >> there is no doubt that our failure to roll out the aca smoothly has put a burden on democrats, whether they're running or not. because they stood up and supported this effort through thick and thin. and, you know, i feel deeply responsible for making it harder for them rather than easier for them to continue to promote the core values that i think led him to support this thing in the first place. >> president obama said the criticism he has been facing has been, quote, deserved. he also said he understands how some people must fee
conservative state. i await your spin, and no, i don't think blaming a.c.o.r.n., the u.n. and george soros is going to do it. joy reid is in for martin today. >> darn it, we can't blame a.c.o.r.n. it's tuesday, november 5th, election day in america. and who says this is an off campaign year? ♪ >> election day, 2013. >> one of my favorite days of the year. >> two key governor races prompting all kinds of gop soul searching. >> it's the first major race between the forces of the new republican tea party. >> would not be here if he were 50 points behind, about to be your next governor. >> i'm pleased to be here for him. >> i hope you guys are fired up. >> this is a referendum on obama care. >> it's a referendum on obama care. no to obama care. >> passing the law was the easy part. >> terry mcauliffe is scared to death of what obama care is doing to terry mcauliffe. >> there has been so much noise and misinformation. >> we need to make his fears come true. >> on one night, the whole country is looking to for leadership. >> some may go down tonight, but it ain't going to b

the republicans stop? >> please don't answer yet. >> let fight begin. >> we have got to get the website up and running. >> we believe site will be working smoothly by the end of the month. >> democrats are confident. >> nobody in this room. nobody in this country. >> this is not about politics. >> this is barbaric politics. >>> there is a brewing revolt tonight among democrats in the house of representatives according to at least one unnamed democrat who told nbc news today -- there is a brewing revolt among house democrats, the white house never has our back on these types of things. they have no plan b, no apparent fix. they're clueless on top of that. bill clinton sure as hell didn't make it any easier for this white house with his comments. they need to figure something out by friday. fast. on friday, house republicans will introduce a bill that will allow people who have had their insurance plans canceled to keep those plans if they still exist for one year. even if the coverage is below the required minimum under the affordable care act. that will surely attract some democratic votes
plans that don't meet the new requirements under obama care. the president's proposal is a lot more limited. and there's something to what the white house is saying about how, yes, this will have impacts on the insurance market. there are good reasons why insurers are displeased about it. but the effects are likely to be fairly limited over the long term, partly because this is only supposed to go for one year, although who knows what will happen at the end of 2014 if we do this and people say, well, i still don't want to lose my plan. it's a very key thing that only people on the existing plans can stay on them. there's a lot of what they call churn in the individual insurance market. people change plans a lot. if you say you can stay on the same plan that you were on as of 2013, most people, for one reason or another, they have a change in an employment situation, move to a new state, will have a reason they want to change to a new plan. eventually people should get into the new exchanges and out of the old plans. >> i get kind of the key difference here that you're pointing out i
-election sites they don't want it to sink their own re-election. senator gillibrand joining us. we appreciate your time. want to start with the white house meeting your colleagues attended yesterday. voer, there's a lot of frustration among your caucus and constituents about the website. why isn't there value extending the enrollment for a limited period of time to make up for the two months lost by the problems with the site? >> well, what's important to all of america is they get access to affordable health care. we don't want to delay the access. we want to make sure the computer system gets up and running. people can buy a plan affordable and covers things. we want to make sure covered up to 2026, don't get coverage dropped because of pre-existing conditions. that's why we wan to push ahead to make sure they get the coverage they need. >> are you satisfied with the way they handled thing since the rollout? we know the rollout has been handled since the disaster. have they been upfront with people about the failures? >> i think so. the president said yesterday these are huge challenges. we
good, and i ignored a few things that kind of bothered me. but now i don't like chris christie. >> as for chris christie, i will do everything i can in my little way to make sure he's not the nominee. >> i hope that he poses a real challenge to hillary clinton in the democratic primary. >> they denounce, they denigrate the almost winner, the guy that will write the book on could have, would have, should have as the guy they embrace. >> i think they're very concerned about chris christie. he's been able to downplay his stance on some of the conservative issues. some of them know where he stands and he's frankly a little too moderate for them on many of these issues. what we saw with chris christie was a breath of fresh air, more business minded conservatives that saw christie actually able to win over some minorities. he won over over 50% of the latino vote. over 20% of the african-american vote. i think over 50% of the latino vote. i think it shows that he's a republican that can attract these folks. he has a broad message, one that would actually play very well in the general
down to two major points. a lot of people don't have health insurance because they can't afford it so you have to have subsidies. that's what you did in massachusetts. and in order to make sure your risk pool is right, you have to have young and healthy people in it so that the people would be taken care of who are older and sicker. that's what you did. but here's what you said to meet the press back in 2007 about the mandate. i want to play it and get your reaction. >> i think you're going to find that when it's all said and done after all these states, laboratories of democracy, get the chance to try their own plans, that those who follow the path we pursued will find it's the best path and we'll have a nation that takes the mandate approach. >> you don't believe all states should adopt this, but you do believe all states should take a mandate approach. if it's so good for massachusetts, what's wrong with taking it national? >> what i said there was precisely right, which was each state should be able to put in place the plan that works best for them, and if they adopt the massachus

? is it to now manage expectations in the next two weeks? is it to throw all -- i don't know how many more hands you can have on deck. maybe people from kayak and amazon.com. but how does the white house deal with this? >> i think more issa hearings would be very useful for the white house. every time these guys seem to be going under water, issa throws them a life raft. it's amazing to me the extent to which he keeps making the same mistake over and over again. i think in general, and my colleague wrote a story this morning which makes this point as well, is to keep the president as far away from this mess as possible. we see them throwing a new person under the bus every day. henry chow, marilyn tavenner. i think the key is to sort of create this, i think, an illusion of collective irresponsibility as opposed to having a buck stops here moment. >> that's interesting. you think they would just keep president obama isolated, have other people take the fall as it were, even if no one gets fired. but this is part of actual strategy. >> yeah, and also -- and i think "the washington post" reported j
, an obama slingshot where the pulling back and off it goes. i don't see how it can get an awful lot worse. i think he may be bottoming out here. you're absolutely right about the trust factor and that it -- if you like your health plan you can keep it and period, that has done him some kind of nixonyan levels of damage. that story isn't going to last forever any more than the shutdown story lasted forever. nothing around politics seems to last forever. but how can it get worse? well, one way they could miss that end of this month deadline, which they inhe have itably will arguably, it will be possible to argue there will be people that are still having trouble. but as obama care kicks in and gradually over months, that will be a story and you'll see obama start to come up a little bit. >> it has to happen for obama to hand it off to another democrat next time. >> rick, to that point of obama care kicking in and hopefully the president coming back, another issue we're starting to hear more about again, the controversy over the requirement that health insurance companies provide access to birt
